Bow Manufacturers / Browning Illusion?

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. Just curious about something. I'm not really clear about what company makes which bows. I think Browning and PSE are made by the same company, but not too sure. I've also heard that the parent company of Fred Bear also owns Matthews/Solocam. Is that true?

Also, has anyone shot the Browning Illusion? Any pros/cons?

Thanks in advance!

John

IMO, Browning puts out a quality product. I don't know anything about the Illusion but I have a ballistic mirage that is nearly ten yrs old and has been a great bow for me. One of the things that impressed me with Browning was at that time they offered the widest range of adjustment in a bow. I can't offer anything on your other questions but in todays corporate world it is likely that many different brand name are manufactured under the same roof.

Thanks, Eagle. I currently shoot a Ballistic Mirage, too. It's been a great bow for me. But lately, it seems the deer are knocked over by the sonic boom created at the time of release before the arrow even reaches them...

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
